Alhama de Granada is a picturesque town whose name comes
from its thermal baths, called al-hammam in Arabic. This
unassailable fortress perched above a deep canyon was taken
by the Catholic Monarchs in 1482. This was the one of hardest
blows for the Muslims in the Kingdom of Granada. The episode
inspired the famous poem ¡Ay de mi Alhama! A tour
of the Arab quarter is a wonderful experience for the senses.
The Church of La Encarnación .It was built on the grounds of the
Great Mosque in times of the Catholic Monarchs in a late Gothic style.
Its silhousette stands out in the highest part of the town.
